Bubbles Unbound by Sarah Strohmeyer

Title: Bubbles Unbound

Author: Sarah Strohmeyer

Genre: Chick Lit

Summary: Hair stylist Bubbles wants something better in life - to be someone her daughter can admire. After taking and failing every course offered by the community college, she finds one that suits her perfectly - journalism. After all, digging out gossip is what hair stylists do best.

The Take-Away: It was fun to learn that Strohmeyer had help writing her book from Janet Evanovich. It wasn't fun learning that Bubbles had no idea that Althea was a goddess. It was fun to see why Bubbles is determined to better herself. It wasn't fun to see novice mistakes like long sections of exposition and awkwardly introduced characters.

Having read the third in the series Bubbles A Broad, however, I know that she gets better.

Recommendation: Borrow it from the library and catch-up while waiting for the next Stephanie Plum book.
